From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): Perine was actually outplayed significantly by Rob Kelley, but Kelley's rib injury should open the door for the rookie to get more carries, beginning next Sunday night against the Raiders in a game that could give him scoring opportunities.

Week 3: vs Oakland Raiders

All RB vs OAK

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Starting running back Rob Kelley is injured and may miss this game due to a rib injury. Kelley who had a great game last week against the Rams running for 6.5 yards per carry which was a career high for the running back in games that he started was impressive in week two before leaving the game. Samaje Perine replaced Kelley and while Perine had 21 carries he was not nearly as effective with his carries in this game as he only had 3.2 yards per carry. The Redskins offense continues to be that when the offensive line gives them a push up front the running backs are difficult to bring down once they get to the second level as both Perine and Kelley are 235 pounds. Last season the Raiders ranked as a below average run defense as they allowed 110 yards per game, but currently are being led by two rookies defensive lineman Eddie Vanderdoes and linebacker Marquel Lee both who have played a big part in this run defense holding the Titans running backs to just 69 yards on 18 carries which was a significant performance in week one. The Raiders did show some signs of 2016 last week as they allowed 5 yards per carry to the Jets. The ultimate issue is that their defensive line does not get a consistent push that you expect from an elite run defense unit.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs LAR (21 / 67 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 0 / 0 rec)

Samaje Perine did most of the heavy lifting in the second half as Rob went down with an injury. He didn't run efficiently but his twenty one carries helped eat up clock to secure the victory. His longest run went for twelve yards but he ran tough and will likely be the early down running back while rob is out.

2017 Week 1 vs PHI (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Samaje Perine was not involved in today's game. He is buried on the depth chart behind two veterans.
